Garnet was long ago used as a protective talisman as it is believed to give the wearer advance warning of danger. It is an excellent stone for times of crisis, fortifying our survival instinct and courage. It helps us find a way to overcome seemingly hopeless situations.
Garnet is also a stone of love and commitment. It enhances our sexuality, eliminates our inhibitions, opens our heart, inspires devotion and emotional harmony.
Garnet is a powerful stone to cleanse, purify, regenerate and balance our chakras and our energies. It can enhance our third-eye so we can see ourselves and others for who they and we really are, in the process eliminating people and behaviors that are no longer serving a purpose in our lives.
Garnet is best worn in contact with the skin.
